The College of Liberal Arts, World Languages and Cultures Department and Society for Arts and Humanities will host the Tournées Film Festival, a French film festival on campus with screenings at 7 p.m. Fridays through February 23 in Forum 1. All screenings are free and open to the public.

The Tournées Film Festival will help the community discover French and Francophone culture through six critically-acclaimed films in French with subtitles. Faculty will lead discussions following the screenings.

The films that will be shown as part of the festival include “Beauty and the Beast,” “Phantom Boy,” “The Missing Picture,” “Louise by the Shore” and “April and the Extraordinary World.”

The Film Festival is made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S., the Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée (CNC), the French American Cultural Fund, Florence Gould Foundation and Highbrow Entertainment.
